FF-80 Rearwin Speedster
Wingspan: 36"
Class: Scale flyer
Building Skill / Flying Skill: Easy / Easy

[IMAGE The Rearwin Speedster was a sport aircraft produced in the United States in the 1930s. It was a high-wing strut-braced monoplane of conventional design with an enclosed cabin and fixed, tailskid undercarriage.[2] Developed during the Great Depression, work was suspended between 1934 and 1937. By the time it was resumed, the ACE Cirrus engine that had powered the two prototypes was out of production, and Speedsters produced in series had Menasco C-4 engines.

This kit is a 1/10.6 scale, flying model that uses the Box and Former method of construction. Pre-1942 design, eligible for Society of Antique Modelers (SAM) contests.

[IMAGE A beautiful airplane with the unlikely combination of speed, fuel efficiency, safety and stability. This 1934-37 sport airplane is a great subject for modeling.

This free flight rubber powered kit contains a full-size rolled plan, building and flying instructions, hand-picked competition weight printed balsa and balsa strip wood, rubber motor, propeller, nose package, clear plastic for the windshield, vacuum-molded spinner and wheel pants, wheels, wire, and Easy Built Lite colored tissue. You will need a building board, pins, hobby knife, fine sandpaper, and glue.

Rearwin Airplanes was founded by Raymond Andrew ("Rae") Rearwin in 1928. Following Charles Lindbergh's historic transatlantic flight in 1927, the world's fascination with aviation grew significantly. Moreover, the Air Commerce Act of 1926 established the government certification program of pilots and aircraft that gave the fledgling industry safety and legitimacy.

Employing his two sons, Royce and Ken, the small company designed and built over 400 airplanes, including instrument trainers and gliders, despite the devastating effects of the Great Depression.

Rae Rearwin sold the company to the Empire Ordinance Company in 1942. The company built about 275 more Skyrangers under the Commonwealth name before they closed their doors in 1946.
